The Day We Did Some Caches

Today had been determined the day that Sarah and I would do a bit of caching activity.

First we visited They Flew From the Forest, one of Sarah’s caches, which needed a new log book, and now it has one! There’s another cache nearby but we weren’t sure if it was still there – a quick phone call to Nobby confirmed that it was, and soon Sarah had found Solent Way – Tithe Barn – which I’d found a couple of years ago.

The main job for the day, though, was to replace the cache camera in Bob’s Box: Theoretically Sarah and I jointly own this one, but I did the hide and the puzzle and Sarah had never been there, so she can legitimately claim it as a find :-) . As you can see from the picture, the dogs helped us with the find – the reason I look so manic is that I’m trying to stop Lenny escaping before the self-timer on the camera took the picture!

All that activity left us with an appetite, so it was lucky that the next planned activity – after changing out of our muddies – was lunch at the Heath: We’ve been here a few times, in fact I had my birthday bash here a couple of years ago, but neither of us had visited since it was refurbished so we wanted to know what it was like. It’s posher than it was!

After lunch, Sarah needed to visit a couple of shops, so we went down into Hythe, where a visit to the pet shop resulted in me carrying a 17kg bag of dog food back to the car. Although I struggled with it a bit, it was nice to work out that it weighed only 70% of the weight I’ve lost in the last couple of years :-) . And then it was back to Sarah Mansions for tea and chat to round off the day.
